Disclaimer: Not mine. I promise I'm only borrowing them and will return them to their rightful owners whenever they ask for them back. My imagination took a flight of fancy.....my bank account stayed empty. (Seriously, the cast of SVU belong to Dick Wolf and NBC and I'm only borrowing them for some free daydreaming that I wrote down)
Spoiler/Author’s Notes: : It's fluff,in which Olivia continues to grasp the real beauty of Amazon.co.uk and multi-region DVD players….. ....oh, and in case it feels familiar, it's been up at Passion and Perfection for a while....
"Yes..." bemused, Olivia looked up from her paperwork to see a rather disgruntled UPS employee
Obediently, Olivia unhooked her badge from her belt and flicked it open to show him the ID. Satisfied, he began prodding away at his handheld computer, before thrusting it in her face
"Sign" he demanded.
"Your package" Olivia suspected that it was only her gold shield and gun that was stopping him from tacking 'dumbass' on the end of that statement. Deciding that it was unlikely that someone would UPS a bomb or anything else unfriendly to her at the stationhouse, she obediently took the stylus and scribbled an approximation of her signature across the screen. Seconds later, she had a receipt and a box slammed on her desk as the dejected employee stomped out of the squad room.
"He was happy in his work" commented Elliot, passing him as he returned with some coffee for his partner
"Thanks" replied Olivia distractedly, sizing up the box now sitting on top of her paperwork
"Someone sending you gifts?"
"You expecting something?"
"Yeah" Olivia leaned in a little closer, trying to spot if there was anything helpful on the label. Spotting a number that looked vaguely familiar, she decided it was safe to open.
"You know what it is?"
"I know who it's from" amended Olivia, correcting her partner
"Alex? Why would she be UPS-ing stuff to you here? You guys fight or something?"
"It's her Amazon order. For some reason she sent it here."
Before Olivia could investigate the package any further, her phone vibrated with a text message. Snagging the phone from her belt, she opened the message, which was short, cryptic and yet to the point.
"Amazon delivers fast. Multiregion DVD players good. BBC Dramas even better. I'm in bed. Where are you?"
Gulping, Olivia shoved her phone in her pocket, hoping Elliot hadn't seen the message. Glancing at the clock, she noticed that she could go off the clock now, having come in early and worked through lunch. Standing sharply, she grabbed her leather jacket and the package before heading for the door.
"Long enough day - Alex's day off. Seems mean to prolong my day when there's nothing pressing" explained Olivia tersely, eager to escape before something pressing did suddenly appear
"Good call. See you tomorrow Liv"
Waving, Olivia strode out of the squad room, hitting speed dial as soon as she hit the stairs, taking them two at a time
"Yeah, they just came"
"I'm on my way"
"20 minutes, I promise"
"Oh God..." Olivia swallowed as she heard the phone hang up at the other end. Hailing a taxi, she climbed in and gave her address, along with the incentive of a big tip if he got her there in half the time it should do.
Amazon delivers fast, very fast if you pay extra for overnight shipping. Multiregion DVD players are brilliant, allowing you to watch the full versions produced for the UK audiences, rather than edited versions screened in the US, not to mention special features and deleted scenes. The BBC adaptations of Sarah Waters' novels were, as the text message said, very good. And now that Alex had connected their multiregion DVD player up to the TV in the bedroom...who needs cable for the L word when you can have lesbianism in Victorian London and a naked ADA?
Certainly not Olivia Benson!
The stories I write are all written from a femslash perspective. If you are a rigid fan of traditional m/f pairings, you won't find anything on this site that appeals. If you are not comfortable with the idea of women being interested or aware of other women in a sexual sense, you won't find anything on this site that appeals. If you are a fan of f/f writing, but like the sex to be more important than the plot, you won't find anything on this site that appeals. My writing is not universally PG rated, but neither is it explicit. There are no PWPs here.
What I write is called fanfiction, because it is fiction, written by a fan. I do not to this for profit, just for fun. All the main characters in my writing belong to other people.
